Lovely, beautiful, sentimental and also a funny movie that takes you back to a much, much earlier time in America that will never be again. A story of a young girl who wants to be an actress and her salty father who is really a kind person. We have the appearance of the young Anthony Perkins as well. The movie is very well acted and it is based on the true life story of Ruth Gordon (born Ruth Gordon Jones). It is a movie that the whole family will enjoy--very nostalgic and endearing. I enjoyed it. See it when you can or rent or buy it. Entertaining and delightful and as I said at the beginning: it is a lovely old fashioned movie. They don't make them like this anymore and more's the pity.
